Tekran has provided more ambient and CEM systems than any other supplier worldwide.

About Us

Foundations

Tekran was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1989 to develop custom analytical instrumentation for environmental analysis. Our first analyzer, the Tekran 2537, was introduced in 1993 and is now widely accepted as the gold standard for automated ambient air analysis of mercury. Tekran continues to expand and improve our product lines, which are focused exclusively on instruments and systems for mercury measurement. We now offer systems for ambient air mercury speciation monitoring, automated analysis of total mercury and methyl mercury in environmental samples, total mercury in natural gas, and mercury continuous emission monitoring of coal-fired power plants and other industrial emission sources. We also offer a wide range of secondary equipment to support our main product lines.

Who We Are

Tekran Instruments Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced systems for ambient air, laboratory analysis, and point-source mercury monitoring. With pioneering expertise in cold vapor atomic fluorescence detection, Tekran has become the trusted source for accurately and reliably measuring ultra-trace levels of mercury. Tekran has provided more automated air analyzers and Hg-CEM monitoring systems than any other supplier worldwide.

What We Do

Tekran is an international leader in environmental measurement technology, serving the needs of industry, government and research institutions with applications ranging from pure research to primary manufacturing. We revolutionized continuous mercury monitoring through the use of cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrophotometry and pure gold preconcentration. Tekran’s systems for ultra-trace measurement of mercury in ambient air, stack emissions and environmental samples are extraordinarily sensitive and robust with detection limits of less than 1 picogram absolute and practical immunity to interfering compounds.

Leadership

Tekran is known worldwide for the accuracy and dependability of our equipment and will continue to exceed customer expectations. From developing the industry’s first proven ambient air analyzer and mercury Hg-CEMs, Tekran has been at the forefront of the mercury measurement industry since 1992. For example, the Tekran 3310 Elemental Mercury Calibration Source was chosen by the US National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) as the “NIST Prime” which is used to certify all other Hg-CEM calibration sources.
Tekran’s research and development efforts continue to be headed by cofounders Frank Schaedlich and Dan Schneeberger. Our unique solutions and industry leading designs have been awarded numerous patents. With our growing staff of research engineers and technicians, the Tekran team leads the way with employee commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. As we pursue future opportunities, we know Tekran has the people, technology and resources to measure up to your standards and ours.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Tekran - Model Series 2600 - Flow Based Configuration Automated Sample Analysis System

The Tekran Series 2600 is the most stable, sensitive ultra-trace mercury analyzer available today. It was designed to be easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to maintain. The Series 2600 CVAFS Mercury Analysis System has a number of unique features that increase its perfor-mance and flexibility. The standard system is equipped with the same detector as is used in our Model 2500. The Model 2500 Atomic Fluorescence Detector is renowned for its ...

Tekran - Model 3321 - Oxidizer Module

The Tekran Model 3321 Wall Mounted Sample Conditioner can be configured to supply Ionic Mercury Calibration Gas to the 3300Xi Hg CEM system. The calibration source allows both multi-point calibrations and standard additions to be automatically initiated. The unit generates concentrations of ionic mercury by oxidation elemental Hg output from the Tekran 3310Xi Hg Calibration Unit.

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury speciation in air

Tekran offers the only completely integrated, automated system for measuring mercury speciation in air. The Tekran 2537, when coupled to the Model 1130 and Model 1135 provides a continuous record of gaseous elemental mercury, gaseous oxidized mercury and particle-bound mercury. Over the past 12 years, the Tekran 2537-1130-1135 system has been the most significant tool used to advance the understanding of the fate and transport of atmospheric mercury. See the Expert’s Corner for details about international...

Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependability...
